No, they are not certain that I had an infection. They never took a biopsy or anything. I think they thought it was an infection because of my symptoms. I did get better when I was on the antibiotics, but I had to be on them for a long time. My fevers went away, but the pain did not.
I did get my annual gyno exam just last month and everything checked out fine.
It doesn't feel like CD pain and inflamation though I could be wrong. I seem to be able to eat, digest and pass all kinds of foods. My docs don't feel any thinkening or swelling in my intestines. They do feel alot of scar tissue. I have had five surgeries on my tummy where they had to
open me up all the way. I know I do scar very bad.
I will ask my doc tormorrow if he thinks my liver might still be leaking and if that would cause the pain. I'm willing to ask anything at this point. I'm tired of the pain and the drugs.
Thank you for your thoughts. It really helps.
Dx in 1984 with Crohn's Disease. In 1988 my terminal Ileum was removed due to inflamation that caused it to rupture. I had surgery in February 2007 to remove more of my intestines due to scar tissue. I then developed a very bad abdominal infection and was on IV antibiotics until June 2007. I now have chronic pain which may or may not go away.
